    I have the 4th edition, is it worth it to upgrade to the new 5th edition? I'm mainly interested in 20ga 28ga and 410 loads.

    Yes, I think so. More powders and hulls have been introduced since the 4th edition.

    thats what I was wondering. The 4th edition doesn't even have longshot listed. Looks like i'll have to pick myself up one.

    The Fifth Edition has most of the older loads plus a few newer ones. It really has a lot of Steel, Bismuth, Hevi-Shot, Buckshot, and Slug loads. It's a must-have if you load those types. A good many of the loads seem to be carried over from some of the earlier editions, pretty much unchanged. There is a lot of updated data as well, so it's probably worth the cost. I use it for a reality check against some of the manufacturers data. There might be a few errors in the data as well, so be careful with ANY source of data. This book is no exception.

    Just how many of you are still taking loads from the Remington books from the 70's & 80's? They still work but are extremely limiting..new shells & powders ect., ect.
